Depends on how long it takes to release sarge. ;-) I do not know the
current status of NM first hand but it should not take *much* longer
than a month. Asking on the correct ml (newmaint) might yield better

Yes, of course.

Are you asking what is slowing down sarge currently?
* debian-installer.
* About 300 release critical bugs http://bugs.debian.org/release-critical/

I do not know the status of /your/ packages, but the stuff you are not
able to fix now will entertain sarge's users for 1-2 years.
